Minneapolis Labor Review Archive: An Online Treasure
Students can explore 100 years of labor history at the click of a mouse button by visiting the on-line archive of the Minneapolis Labor Review newspaper.
In 2004, the Minneapolis Labor Review newspaper launched an on-line archive dating back to the first issue in 1907. The Labor Review Archive provides a window into one hundred years of working class culture and labor union history. Notably, the archive also offers a first-hand look at one of the pivotal moments in the nation¹s labor history, the Minneapolis Teamsters Strikes of 1934.
Access to the archive is free. It is searchable by name, topic, or date. Visitors to the archive view the pages of the Labor Review as they originally appeared. Entire pages may be printed and downloadable PDF files allow students to import text, photos, editorial cartoons, advertisements, and other images for use in their projects.
Visit the archive.
